4:30am
>> absolutely. yes. there has to be a reason to get up in the morning because it can't possibly be the fog and low clouds. but that's what we have for today. the usual slick streets out there to start out with. the numbers warmer than yesterday. we have a bit of a slick forecast coming up. first let's see what's new in traffic. >> yeah. be careful of slick roads. but so far, so good on the bay bridge toll plaza. >> thank you. here we go. it is 4:30 now. bart and the unions are $100 million apart. they will get back to negotiations this morning and kpix 5's linda yee went to find out if they are so far apart after all these months, how can they possibly reach any deal at all? >> what an unreasonable -- >> reporter: it was a chance to air their grievances. bart management and the unions clarifying what's been going on in talks that started last april. what was clear? they are about $100 million
4:31am
apart in pay and pension issues. public policy advocates the bay area council says that's shocking! >> a little bit flabbergasted by the -- how big a divide there is between bart and the unions. >> reporter: in fact, the council says bart's proposals are fair and the unions should take the contract and start paying into their pensions. findings from the hearing will go to the governor, who could then impose a 60-day cooling- off period for more negotiating time. bart wants that. the unions say that's not necessary. one of the board members didn't agree. >> i'm surprised to hear you say it could be achieved sunday night. >> reporter: one former bart director and now retired judge has an idea of how to settle it and it's not what commuters want to hear. >> i think the resolution will come if they strike. the resolution will come because the public will be heard. >> reporter: that's going to
4:32am
happen, you think? >> yes. >> reporter: strike is inevitable and when the public gets mad, it's going to get solved? >> yes. somebody will wise up. >> reporter: linda yee, kpix 5. >> the governor is expected to decide by sunday whether to order a 60-day cooling-off period. >> 4:32. oakland police think a father who was killed along with his young son was targeted. a small memorial of balloons, teddy bears and candles sit in front of the east oakland house where they were killed yesterday morning. 20-year-old andrew thomas and his son drew jackson were in town from fresno to celebrate a relative's birthday. they were sleeping in a back bedroom when police say somebody snuck into the backyard and opened fire through a window and a wall. >> pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop. like 8 or 9 times. >> i just wish this stops. i don't want, you know, my other cousins to try to retaliate. >> officers believe these killings could be connected to
4:33am
saturday's murder of thomas' cousin. oakland police arrested a person in that killing. now, the double shooting is just the latest in a series of unsolved murders in oakland. three weeks ago, 8-year-old alaysha carradine was shot during a sleepover in the diamond district. a week after that 66-year-old judy salamon was shot while driving a car near maxwell park. oakland officials are reviving operation cease-fire in the fight against out of control violence. kpix 5 reporter christin ayers asked the mayor and the police chief about the city's number one crime-fighting plan. reporter: on the day that 1- year-old drew jackson became oakland's youngest homicide victim in at least a decade, the mayor and police chief did what they do when tragedies like this strike. >> we are determined to make the city safer. >> reporter: they talked about yet another public safety plan that hasn't worked for oakland, cease-fire. >> we're going to be calling in some of the people who have been involved in some of the most violent crimes. >> reporter: that was the mayor 11 months ago rolling out the
4:34am
program and now -- mayor, with all due respect, we have all seen this happen so many times, so many young children shot and on top of it we keep hearing about these plans to change things and we haven't seen a lot change. what is oakland's centerpiece plan to address young children being killed? >> we plan to continue with cease-fire until we have hauled in the 300 most violent people in the city. it doesn't happen in one round. >> reporter: why hasn't it been fully funded at this point? why have we been waiting so long? it's been months? >> i think -- >> let me just say, so, cease- fire is absolutely my number one strategy for reducing violent crimes, shootings and murders in this town. >> reporter: but we found out cease-fire is not being run like the city's number one strategy. there is no permanent director. and the few officers who have been running cease-fire have only been doing it part time. chief sean whent says that will change. >> i'm able to dedicate a full- time enforcement team to cease-
4:35am
fire to make sure the police department meets our end of the program. >> reporter: in the meantime both the mayor and police officer say they are working with teams, that east oakland nonprofit youth uprising, to start a youth-based safety program. those teams say they want to be optimistic. >> when this is all said and done, when the cameras are packed up and the microphones are put away, then, you know, i don't know how much hope that's going to be. >> reporter: christin ayers, kpix 5. >> now, police will work to get young people to speak up when they hear of crimes that are likely to happen. oakland police say they have used operation cease-fire to basically dismantle two gangs. the case gang and the "money team." but oakland's homicide rate is still very close to what it was last year. friends and family are stepping up their search for a missing woman. they spent much of yesterday putting up pictures of 50-year- old sandra coke. she was last seen at her north oakland home on sunday night. investigators say she may have been investigating a tip about her dog that was abducted
4:36am
during a burglary in may. coke's car was found at an apartment complex parking lot on monday night. >> a truly painful, painful thing to have somebody who you love and who has family members who depend on her just disappear. it is just unthinkable. >> sandra coke is an investigator for the federal defenders office. her coworkers do not think her line of work has anything to do with her disappearance. the amber alert for a missing teenager and murder suspect has spread to oregon and washington. oregon state police say there have been two possible sightings of james dimaggio's blue nissan versa. investigators believe 16-year- old hannah anderson is with him. a friend of the teen says dimaggio recently said he had a crush on hannah. dimaggio is suspected of killing hannah's mother, her body found in the burned rubble of dimaggio's san diego county
4:37am

4:48am
between embarcadero and high street various lanes blocked and if you are commuting southbound it's once you get closer to san leandro we have various lanes blocked approaching davis. the roads are also a little slick. it's a little bit of drizzle out there. so just be a little extra careful, as well. we do have one issue. it's a telephone pole down and the road is blocked up in napa county. highway 29 between greenwood and tubbs in calistoga. chp says traffic is so light so there's no issue but you are being diverted off the road at greenwood. your travel times for the east bay are so far in the clear if you are traveling through the altamont pass. 16 minutes coming down the eastshore freeway so far no brake lights through berkeley all the way towards the macarthur maze. and mass transit nothing really to note and we just checked in with bart as well and they have 27 trains and they're all on time. that is your latest "timesaver traffic." back to you. >> okay, liz. thanks. 4:48. we are going to take a live look at the silver fire burning

4:50am
claims are fatally defective. san jose's attorney calls it a moral issue. >> can major league baseball block a competitor in this country from relocating his business simply because someone else says we don't want them to move? >> reporter: back in june, the city sued the league claiming commissioner bud selig is illegally blocking the as' move. the as want to build a new stadium in san jose but the south bay is giants territory. the league says if san jose wins its lawsuit then every time a team wanted to move it would lead to absurd results. mlb would be subjected to suits from any team that desires a team and from any city that doesn't want to lose its team. >> not what the competitive laws say. that's not what the antitrust laws say for any other business in america. baseball shouldn't be treated differently. >> reporter: and so this 14- acre lot in midtown san jose where the stadium would go has
4:51am
pretty much been unchanged the past four years. they will be in federal court in october. kiet do, kpix 5. >> the judge is expected to hear the issue in early october. as owner lew wolff is not part of the lawsuit against major league baseball. more companies will come out with their 2nd quarter earnings reports today. disappointing results from several companies yesterday led stocks to its first three-day drop since the month of june. the dow dropped 48 points and the nasdaq finished almost 12 points lower. so it's been a tough week. americans set a record though for borrowing money. the federal reserve says we borrowed more than $2.8 trillion back in june. it wasn't all put on plastic, either. much of the money was in loans for homes and cars and college tuition. at the same time americans cut their credit cart debt by $2.7 billion. younger adults are buying fewer cars. automakers say the number of 18 to 34-year-olds buying cars has dropped by more than 2% over the past five years. the auto industry believes
4:52am
those numbers will improve as the economy gets better. 4:51. coming up a shark spotted right in the san francisco bay. but this guy is not what it seems. also ahead -- >> all of a sudden along came these superheros and it was as though the readers couldn't get enough of them. >> fans waiting in long lines to meet the creator of spider- man. his connection to the bay area comic bookstore. ,, ,,,,,,

4:55am
take. >> it was kind of cruising along these pilings over here. i could see the top of the fin and back of the tail and just kind of swimming along. really cool thing to see. >> reporter: could you mistake it for a great white? >> i could definitely see how someone could make that mistake. >> we were brought some photographs here. it was initially thought to be a great white. none of our biologists had a chance to actually see the animal. the animal in question upon closer inspection of the photographs appears to be salmon shark which is very closely related to great whites. and they're also commonly seen here in the bay. >> reporter: while the salmon shark is related to the great white, it is not a man-eater. >> would have scared me! try to explain this. the dead shark was found on a new york city subway overnight. the guy who took the photo says it was still wet, had blood on its mouth. was it maybe a shark week stunt? the discovery channel says nope. it wasn't them. a little ominous, though. >> a little bit, yeah. >> weird in new york. >> where's the water?
4:56am
